Project Benefits and Need

Proposed by a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources, LLC, the 90-megawatt High River Energy Center will power New York with clean, renewable energy.

Benefits for the Local Community

The High River Energy Center is expected to deliver new jobs and economic development to Montgomery County and the Town of Florida.

Local and State Leadership

The High River Energy Center is expected to position Montgomery County as a leader in renewable energy and help New York meet its renewable energy goals.

  • Governor Cuomo announced that New York should produce half of its total power from renewable sources by 2030, and projects like this will help meet that need.
  • This new source of clean, renewable power produces no air or water pollution and is in line with the state’s Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) initiative, which is fostering new opportunities for renewable power and new wind generation that will help New York transform its energy generation system.
